Day 009 – 100 days of Keto (Chow)

  • Weight: 205.9
  • Blood ketones: 0.6 mmol/L (04:50)

 

Yesterday I tried Intermittent Fasting again. I’ve done it in the past but usually did regular keto food (half a pound of melted cheese and some bacon). With Keto Chow being a liquid, it complicates things. My approach was to skip breakfast, skip lunch and then drink 1 (Chocolate fudge) around 3 pm, another (chocolate peanut butter) while driving home around 4:30. My final one I drank around 7 PM, I had meant to drink it around 5-5:30 but stuff got busy. Overall I consider it a success. I wasn’t overly hungry throughout the day and I was pleasantly full  once I started eating without feeling crappy. Going to do it again today, this time I brought my ketone blood test strips so I can check my ketone levels a couple times. I’m curious how high they will get when I’m at 19 hours fasting. Anyway, check out http://burnfatnotsugar.com/intermittent-fasting.html for more info on fasting, including the fun myths section where he tackles “starvation mode”, frequent small meals, breakfast being the most important meal of the day, and more.

Updates:

  • at 12:19 my blood ketones were at 0.7 mmol/L
  • at 15:18 my blood ketones were at 1.3 mmol/L – so that’s roughly 17 hours since I last consumed any calories. Not bad at all.

    Can you point me to the blood test device/strip combo you’re using? I’ve been considering using one of those but am not sure what to get. Would rather a person to person recommendation than listening to amazon reviews tbh.

      I’m using the Nova Max. The tester is free but the test strips are crazy expensive. Like $2 per test. I’ve heard very good things about the Precision Xtra as well. If I didn’t already have a bunch of the nova test strips I’d get ones for the Precision.
